This is What Happens When Viper Venom Meets Human Blood

If you’ve ever wondered what viper venom does to human blood, you’re about to find out.

It’s not pretty.

In this video, a snake farmer extracts venom from the fangs of a Russell’s viper, one of the deadliest snakes in Asia.

Indian snake farmers harvest the venom for antivenin. According to the narrator, one ounce of the Russell’s viper venom is worth nearly 10 times the amount of one ounce of pure gold.

A single drop of the snake’s venom can have a devastating effect when mixed with blood. Take a look.

It only took 30 seconds for the viper venom to turn the blood into a cake.

In the words of Indiana Jones, “I hate snakes.”
